This is off the EV topic but I wanted to share. :)

Windows 7 has a recently discovered feature that is being referred to as “God Mode” – somewhat grandiose given that all it really is is control panel plus...

To enable it, create a new folder, and rename it to the following:    GodMode.{ED7BA470-8E54-465E-825C-99712043E01C}

Once done, the folders icon will change to a control panel icon, and the folder will contain *loads* more control & configuration applets than standard control panel alone, meaning you can typically manage just about *every* facet of Windows 7 configuration from this one place...

Allegedly this works on Vista too, although 64-bit vista seems to suffer from nasty side effects so this probably should be avoided on that platform... 32-bit Vista is thought to be OK though...

enjoy!

There's a pretty long list of things to do in that folder.

I did some searching for other neat windows 7 tricks and really didnt find any, and although this really isnt the forum for that, I was wondering if you might have any more tricks up your sleeve.
